My honey doesn't care for cranberries, so I used only shredded carrots and apples. I also only used 1 cup of sugar (no need for more sugar because I omitted the cranberries), and one teaspoon each of baking powder and baking soda. I also added 1/3 cup rolled oats (not quick). I cooked the muffins 26 minutes. They came out a little darker than the picture, but perfectly cooked (the apples were moist and tender on the inside). I'm going to add chocolate chips to my next batch. These are delicious muffins.

Amazing taste! My teenage-daughter made them & forgot to add the nuts, eggs & oil (?) - still very good. I can't wait to try them again with all the ingredients this time!
